As a book, Barrenlands has always been a bit adrift.

It’s a prequel to the CHANGESPELL SAGA with Dun Lady’s Jess, but it wasn’t marketed that way and not too many people picked up on the common factors between them.

It was written to have a sequel, but things being what they are in the publishing world, that hasn’t happened yet, either (although the chances of dramatically improved, thanks to e-publishing options!)

So there it was, tossed out on the shelves with no apparent relation to the things with which it really had a rather deep connection.

Not this time!

Now you know.  And now I can put the books together as the series they are, not to mention…maybe write that missing book between?

Barrenlands

Order: NookKindleKoboSmashwords

Before there was Dun Lady’s Jess…

Magic, betrayal, and a twice-cursed exile–only one man’s determination can untangle the deadly intrigue that binds them together.

When Ehren’s sovereign and friend was killed, Ehren, First of the King’s Guard, was far away — sent on a wild goose chase by the First Level Ministry, whose number he now believes must contain at least one traitor.

When a First Level wizard orders him to stop searching for the assassins and instead to find and neutralize the dead king’s distant family, his suspicions deepen to near certainty.

And Ehren is determined to find those exiles – if only so that he may guard them with his life.

Other books in this series: Dun Lady’s Jess, Changespell, Changespell Legacy

    I have always loved that book – yes I just got it for the Kindle. And YAAY for a possible sequel. Something that I was looking for for years – drat all purblind publishers!

    Big smile from me!

    Oh, I would love to write that sequel–I’ve had it plotted and waiting since before Barrenlands was even published, and I’m counting on backlist sales to help me do that. Gotta buy the time somehow…

    Ok, so here’s a tech question. Can I order the Noon version on my computer and download to my nook? Or is it possible to plug the nook into the computer? No wireless here.

    That would be “Noon” version not “Noon”!

    Patty, clearly you’re doomed to type “noon” today. Hungry? (Oddly enough, I did read it as “Nook” the first time!)

    You *ought* to be able to do that, and then sideload to the Nook via its USB cable. Maybe this will help? PS None of my Nook books have DRM, so you shouldn’t have to deal with the unlocking step.
